Mining Lab Reflection

After the mining lab, please reflect on what your learned by participating in the discussion board. Click here to get to the discussion board. Post your initial reflection, then respond to another post. That is a total of TWO posts.

Please remember to be appropriate, respectful and to stay on topic.

Consider these questions to get started with the conversation.
  • Why is mining a complex business?
  • How does mining impact the economy?
  • How does mining impact the earth?
  • What does this phrase mean, "If it can't be mined, it must be grown"?
  • What is reclamation and why is it important?
  • What was the purpose of some of the rules of the lab? Why were foreman only allowed to talk to the CEO? Why were diggers blindfolded? Why were diggers and sorters fired?
